Seconds later his F3H Demon fighter slammed into Montebello Ridge, back of Stevens Creek Park only 100 feet below the 2,200-foot summit. The plane scorched a 300- yard -long swath through scrub oak and brush before blowing to bits. Thompson's body was found under a tree.

OK Seen for Arts Palaee Land Deal A bill which would give San Francisco clear title to the Palace of Fine Arts lands and make way for recon struction will be passed by- Congress within two weeks, Industrialist Waiter S. John son said yesterday- John son, who returned Wednesday from Washington, said that once the bill is passed, the city and State can enter into an agreement for reconstruction of the crumbling building. "Construction should get started within two or three months," Johnson said. Johnson, who donated $2,000,000 to restore the picturesque structure, said that Congressman John F. Shel ley, who sponsored the bill, and Senator Thomas H. Kuchel promised him they would rush the bill through as soon as possible. "After I talked with Shelley, the House Armed Serv ices Subcommittee approved the bill in two minutes flat," Johnson said. '"We shouldn't have any more trouble." The bill would clear title to undeveloped streets now covered by the lagoon. The Army turned the property over to the city in 1876 but retained title to the extended streets.

These were the brave among the 26 young tenants of the musty old manse at 1900 Franklin St. who face virtual eviction through no fault of their own. The not so brave mainly the six pretty women among the "Mansion Residence Club" membership w e r e hunting other quarters. The sheriff already has removed the crockery from the cookery and for the first time in a decade there was no community breakfast yesterday in the Mansion Club. TV REMOVED Deputies also have removed the dining room tables, the recreation room furnishings and the TV set under a writ of attachment obtained by the building's owners. The owners claim that James F. Markall, the clubs manager, owes them $6,500 reasonable rental value of the mansion. The attachment is against all Markall's personal property which includes the beds and bureaus in his tenants' rooms. Each of the young working men and working women were notified yesterday that the sheriff will be around with a moving van at 8 a. m. today to take the beds. "I'm not leaving," said Larry Adams, 29, a salesman for a duplicating machine company. "If they come for the bed I'll hide my mattress. . . . I've got no place else to go." SOME ENCOURAGEMENT The sheriff gave Adams and the other stayers a measure of strictly unofficial encouragement, however. Chief Deputy Howard E. Dunn said the legal proceed ings in no way involve the personal eviction of the tenants. He admitted that his office had sent around the notices announcing today's bed-removal operation, but added: "Whether or not we will take the beds is an open legal question at this time." Meanwhile, the attorney for Manager Markall, Robert D. Barbagelata, said his client probably will file a damage suit alleging the attachment of the club's furnishings was unlawful. The shabby old mansion, elegant in its day, was the home of the progeny of A. P, Hotaling who made his money in whisky before the turn of the century. Its back stoop was the scene of the famous "poisoned half and-half" incident, when one &3Lx8ffltttfr-.$c.l 3 Friday, Mw.H, I960 CCCC of Hotaling's sons asserted he was the victim of a murder plot. Somebody switched milk bottles on the Hotaling pantry steps and left the family a quart dosed with poison. Fortunately, nobody drank it, but there was angry blood among the Hotaling heirs thereafter. 1860ceIebrating a century of fashion1960 in Ferries? Just a Dream EXAMINER BUREAU, SAC RAMENTO, March 24. The possibility that high - speed ferry boats might flit across San Francisco Bay was offi cially scoffed at here today. Public Works Director Rob ert B. Bradford, in a letter to State Senator J. Eugene Mc- Ateer, San Francisco Democrat, declared: "I don't wish to answer for the Bay Area Rapid Transit District, but I do point out that the transier irom one vehicle to another and then back again at the very heart of the projected rapid transit system threatens the regional nature and character of the system." Finance Director John B. Carr came up with the high speed ferry plan last month, suggesting that aluminum- hulled boats would be better than a "hole bored under the water between San Francisco and Oakland" the proposed rapid transit tube. 3 a W f if .
